Distributing pellet heat from basement?
We have a pellet stove in our unfinished basement that heats the house. Heat goes through the ceiling of the basement and heats the house nicely. We also leave the basement door open. However, I'm currently framing and preparing to drywall the basement. This no doubt will slow/stop the rise of heat into the house.
Any advice for distributing the radiant heat after the basement is finished? I know code prevents putting grates and vents in the main level floor. Any possibility of incorporating a fan to pull heat into the air ducts? Putting an air intake for the furnace near the stove and turning the furnace fan on?
Any ideas, advice, recommendations from similar circumstances? Thank you.
